Selon le site Atabula, Bordeaux est la ville de France où l'on mange le mieux au restaurant. Ouaaaah!
— Alain Juppé (@alainjuppe) June 14, 2017
Bordeaux is home to an impressive selection of restaurants, including three two-star Michelin restaurants, three one-star restaurants and three restaurants awarded the guide's BIB Gourmand, indicating restaurants that offer exceptionally good food at moderate prices.
Even star chef Gordon Ramsey couldn't resist the allure of the city's gastronomic scene, opening Le Pressoir d’Argent Gordon Ramsay located on the first floor of the stunning Le Grand Hôtel.
This isn't the first time Bordeaux's appeal has grabbed headlines. In 2016 a survey showed that it is the city Parisians most want to move to and in August 2014 Bordeaux and it surrounding region was voted as the “best place to work” by the French.
And remember from July Bordeaux is only two hours away from Paris by TGV, thanks to an improved high-speed line.

In order to create the list, food site Atabula took into account 13 categories in its decision-making process, including the number of restaurants located in the city, total number of Michelin stars and the number of restaurants listed in the prestigious Michelin Guide food guide.
